3 Easy and Fast Ways to Prevent Headaches
I have yet to meet one person who has not experienced a headache in his or her lifetime. In addition to disabling your daily routine, a lingering head can also be mentally and physically exhausting.
In order to get rid of headaches, most people resort to taking medication, especially aspirin, because it's the easiest and fastest form of pain relief. However, aspirin can be very unforgiving to your stomach lining even when taken in small quantities for an extended period of time.
The good news is that heads are preventable. The popular saying "prevention is better than cure" definitely applies to headaches. So, what can you do to prevent heads the natural way? Learn these 3 cheap (well, actually they're free!) And easy ways to prevent headaches no matter where you are:
(1) Most people wonder why they get headaches when they read or do activities that require a certain amount of concentration like needlework. It is most likely that there is poor lighting in the room where you are reading. So, how do you know you have sufficient lighting? Make sure the source of light comes from behind your head so you are not training your eyes. Natural light is also best, so sit outside and get some fresh air, or if you have to stay indoors, sit by an open window.
(2) For those who avidly play games online or have to spend long periods of time in front of the computer for work, do not forget to blink your eyes! If you do not blink your eyes, they can become dry and the strain can lead to a headache.
And lastly, remember to breathe … deep.
(3) The human body receives a lot of toxic substances (through the air and via the food and drinks you consume) everyday. When you breathe normally and deeply, you are releasing the toxins in your brain. This conscious act of inhaling takes the oxygen and moves it through the blood to every cell of your body. This Promotes overall health. Exhaling has an inverse effect and sends a message to your brain that you are in a relaxed state of mind. This simple technique can be very powerful because you can do it wherever you are as long as the air is unpolluted.
So, there you have it. 3 easy ways to stop heads before they start. Remember that there are many other things you can do to stop heads, so share these tips with your friends and you might just receive some new ideas in return.
